Subject: Classic Anthem period show
Subject: Classic “Live Dead”-style Dead
Nothing rare about this show – there are other good ones from this period that have better sound quality. Still, a great Dead show is a great Dead show.
Subject: Correction to the Clarification ( below!)
It was, like, "Wow, real hippies from San Francisco!" Promoter did a terrible job publicizing this show, but I bought my tickets from the Ticketron outlet at a local Sears store at the mall.
Subject: I'm Gobsmacked
I attended this concert. So I can shed some light on this event. First, Micky and Bill both performed on drums.
Second, I think Phil's estimate of the audience size was a little high, I'd say there were roughly 200 people in attendence.
Also if you listen carefully to the very end of the final song (we bid you goodnight) you can hear someone beginning to say "We found a place. . ."
Earlier in the concert, a member of the band (And I'm sorry I don't recall which one) told the audience that the security at Veterans Memorial told the Dead they had to cut their performance off or they would close the security doors. That would have meant the Dead's equipment would have been locked inside. The Dead also asked the audience if anyone knew of a place they could reconvene to continue playing. Well someone did and indeed the Dead did move lock stock and barrel to another venue to continue playing until sunup.
One last thing. I cannot swear to it, but I am pretty certain the obnoxious whistling during applause came out of my mouth. So, nearly forty years later, may I now appologize?
Subject: T.C.'s First Show
T.C. is not audible, but this was his first show as a member of the band. It is also a fantastic show. The other reviews are right on target.
jerry looks over at me, and i give him a 'way to go, man' grin. most of the time, we don't use set lists - usually whoever wants to sing a song will call it - so Pig calls 'schoolgirl' and we go from there......(phil, searching for the sound p.139)
Subject: Amazing Audience
Subject: Just one thing, honey I've got to say,
The only other show where Mickey is the only drummer is 12-7-68 (just a few days later)
